We're going to need a bigger boat

I knew Harvard was big, but I didn't know this big... a recent email missive from some dean, talking about Professor Marc Kirshner, noted:
To give you some perspective on this honor, only 22 of Harvard’s more than 12,000 faculty members hold University Professorships.
12,000?!?! That is a lot of dorks.

The other University Professors, in case you're wondering, can be found here. Both Gates & Summers are on the list. Kinda oddly, Kirshner is the first biologist to make the cut.
